KUALA LUMPUR: Outgoing Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) chief executive officer (CEO) Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin has called on his colleagues to always keep to their principles, according to a report by

In a recorded video to them, Wan Zulkiflee, or Wan Zul as he is populary known, reportedly said he hoped Petronas would continue to be led by those with courage and conviction.

"Often, in the position of trust, you will face conflict choices and difficult decisions.

"Sometimes standing by your principles may prove unrewarding and downright unpopular. It is a lonely path that true leaders must tread.

"At the end of it, doing the right thing allows you to have the peace of mind, clarity of conscience of having discharged your amanah - your responsibility with honesty and honour," he was quoted as saying.

Wan Zul also said he was comforted by the fact that he is leaving behind a company that is more resilient and hoped the future generation of company leaders would continue to bring progress.

On July 1, Wan Zul will be heading to Malaysia Airlines Bhd as chairman after 37 years at Petronas. He will be replaced by Petronas chief financial officer Tengku Muhammad Taufik.
